We have never encoutered similiar problems. Is it possible that you have your mouse/keyboard fowarded to the sever machine? If this is the case then it is the expected behaviour. If not, we would need logs from both server and client side.

The old event API used when setting that key is deprecated and the problem is not on NoMachine’s side so there is little we can do about it.
We would like to hear more about the problem with dragging you have mentioned in the first post. Would you be intereseted in trying out a custom package with debug enabled (assuming we won’t be able to reproduce that dragging problem in our labs)?
As for missing modifiers – it sounds like https://kb.nomachine.com/TR09S10357 can you confirm that this is your problem?
Does the pulsing happen only when using local mouse/keyboard? If yes, then it is an expected behaviour that is meant to show that the machine is not “dead” to a user that is not aware that someone is connected.
can you check if any gamma correcting application is running on the server side? It could be f.lux, lunar or something similiar. If they are running you will need to disable them for blanking to work properly.
If that’s not the case we would need server side logs to investigate your problem.

please try to add the following key in the /Applications/NoMachine.app/Contents/Frameworks/etc/node.cfg file on the server machine:
DisplayServerExtraOptions "-oldeventapi 1"
Restart NoMachine and see if anything changes.August 1, 2022 at 15:04 in reply to: Unresponsive Chrome address bar in NoMachine session #39530
you can try using alternate event API. To do so: append
DisplayServerExtraOptions "-alteventapi 1"to
/usr/NX/etc/node.cfgon the server side. After that you will need to restart nxserver (
sudo /etc/NX/nxserver --restart).
If that doesn’t help we would need server side logs to investigate your problem. Please follow instructions from https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/DT11R00181 and send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com.
Unfortunately logs you have sent are from login window not from a session using Awesome WM.
To get proper logs:
1. before connecting with NoMachine make sure that the user is logged in and Awesome WM is running
2. on server side execute:
sudo /etc/NX/nxserver --debug --enable all
3. connect with NoMachine to server machine and make sure that the problem is reproduced.
4. on server machine execute:
sudo /etc/NX/nxserver --debug --collect
You mentioned you have nvidia GPU. Is the problem present when using nouveau drivers? One more thing we noticed is that the “primary” output is disabled. Can you please remove your randr script and see if with default configuration you still get black screen?
is the black screen present also with different WM?
For further investigation we would need a new set of logs from server side. Please make sure that you are connecting to the user’s session (not the login window one). You can follow this link to be sure you get all the logs.November 24, 2021 at 19:22 in reply to: Cannot Use Copy/Paste shortcut in NoMachine With Mac #36416
Can you please try pasting into the terminal with a combination of Ctrl+Shift+V? Some terminal apps use Ctrl+C/V as their inside commands and clipboard is handled by another one (usually by adding Shift key, but it might vary depending on the terminal you use). In addition have you tried pasting with the middle mouse button?
the new problem you described is indeed the result of using that option – some applications use relative coordinates while dragging. We will try again to reproduce your problem and find a fix. If we do, we will let you know in this topic.
yes – that option was added in 7.7.4. Please try it out and let us know if it made any change.
we recently released a new version that has an option that might help you. May you please edit
node.cfgfile located in
/Applications/NoMachine.app/Contents/Frameworks/etc/on the server side and add this line to it:
DisplayServerExtraOptions "-relativecoords 0"
You will need to restart NoMachine server (
sudo /etc/NX/nxserver --restartin terminal) after that, for the changes to take effect. Please let us know if that helped.
Can you please do a recording of your session while reproducing the problem with the on-screen keyboard visible on the server(mac) side?
See below the instructions on how to enable onscreen keyboard:
Turn it on: On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Accessibility, click Keyboard, click Accessibility Keyboard, then select Enable Accessibility Keyboard.
You can also turn on the Accessibility Keyboard by clicking the Input menu in the menu bar, then choosing Show Keyboard Viewer.October 6, 2021 at 11:59 in reply to: Catalina 2021-006 security update may have affected NoMachine server #35600
have you tried disabling and then enabling permissions for NoMachine in Security settings (both for accessibility and screen recording)? If that doesn’t help you can try the workaround from https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/TR08S10329
If none of that help we would need a full set of logs from server-side. Please follow instructions from https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/DT11R00181 and send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com.
